He was an ok qb I guess winning the SuperBowl with the Redskins and was MVP for the SB but he is no where close to being a HC in the NFL, as you might know he's from Louisiana but hell even if he was Benson's best friend he wouldn't become the coach of any NFL team, if so that would tell me that Benson has lost his freaking mind

the whole reason i became a saints fan was back in 1990 with mills, vaughn and the rest of that awesome d kicking some arse.

we need to go ahead and sign donnie henderson right now. the saints already have very little stability in the organization and signing a coach this early, especially a minority coach, would go a long way towards making new orleans a much more attractive team to free agents.

especially a minority coach
I might be ignorant or something but why would that matter at all?

one of the reasons why a minority coach would make the saints a more attractive organization is that a lot of players would like to play for a minoirty coach. there have been many players that are very outspoken about the need for more minoirty coaches and owners in the nfl.

from the latest i have seen 3 of the top candidates for the saints' hc are minoirty coaches

if the saints were in the market belichick or parcells than you would have a point.

the saints are looking for an up and commer to come in and be able to recruit some free agents and change the mentality of the team. if you realize it or not minority hiring is seen as a MAJOR issue in the nfl and among many minority players.

I get the point you are trying to make jerg. I look at some of the most recent coaching hires, Lovie smith, Marvin Lewis, and Romeo Crennel, and all three instantly brought credibility, and a new attitude to those franchises. Now, I am not saying a white candidate can not do that, and I don't think you are either, but the success of those three can not be ignored when it comes to hiring. And yes there have been players who have spoken out about preferring to play for a minority coach. But more than anything, I think players want a leader, someone they can follow, someone who commands respect, and gives it. And that can come from any color candidate. I hope we make a good choice.
